Re: App for music kiosk

September 19th 2018

How do you WANT your patrons to interact? Is the exibit designed for patrons to select a song? If not, a simple media server could stream the songs in a loop without giving patrons a means to search and select.On Wed, Sep 19, 2018, 4:35 PM Christine Fleming [email protected] [talk at museum-ed.org] <[email protected]> wrote: Hello all,____ __ __ We are getting ready for our next special exhibition and I’m have a technology issue I’d love some help with.  I’d like to install an interactive mu ...Continue Reading

RE: App for music kiosk

September 19th 2018

Hi Christine, If you have mp3s of the songs, what I’d recommend is building a simple presentation with something like Flowvella or Pandsuite, which can both house audio content. I’ll be curious to see what other recommendations you get! *Chelsea Shannon* Senior Specialist, Interpretation /MFA/*H* /The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston/ 713.639.7727 [email protected] *From:* [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] *Sent:* Wednesday, September 19, 2018 3:34 PM *To:* talk at museum-ed.org <[email protected] ...Continue Reading

App for music kiosk

September 19th 2018

Hello all,   We are getting ready for our next special exhibition and I’m have a technology issue I’d love some help with.  I’d like to install an interactive music experience with one of our iPads in the gallery.  The featured artist is sending a playlist she’s made to accompany her work, so fun!  The issue I’m having: even with the iPad locked on Guided Access every app I’ve tried has too many features that would allow a museum visitor to “hack” out of the playlist (e.g. searching for a song, vi ...Continue Reading

I’m interested in learning from this group about any existing partnerships or programs your museums/education departments have that involve opera, guilds, performers, etc., and wh ...Continue Reading

History of Beasties or Carved Garden Ornaments

September 13th 2018

Hi everyone!At one of our site, we have carved wooden garden ornaments that we call beasties. I am trying to find the history of them. I asked my manager who remembered seeing an article about them possibly connected to Henry VIII. He may have had a gold painted owl and squirrel. The owl may have symbolized wisdom and the squirrel, abundance. I am coming with a big fat nothing with a variety of Google searches. I have heard through the grapevine that the owl protested the house at night and the squirrel in th ...Continue Reading
